Get your inventions ready for Season 4 of the Emmy award-winning show, Everyday Edisons. Sorry, the casting directors are not coming to a city near you this year.... You're going to them... via the Internet. That's right. Season 4 casting will be conducted online through Edison Nation.
I recently attended my local Inventors Association (Inventors Alliance in Northern California) and noticed that Inventors kept asking Andrew Krauss (President of Inventors Alliance) about the differences between Manufacturing and Licensing a product. New Inventors were confused about what these terms meant and wanted to learn more about the factors to consider when deciding which way to go for their own product. So I thought I'd take a minute to discuss both options as this comes up all of the time in my workshops and classes as well.
Dean Kamen, best known for the invention of the Segway personal transporter, will co-host an 8-part series on invention starting tomorrow, October 22, 2010, for Planet Green on the Discovery Channel. The series, titled Dean of Invention, was named for and after Kamen, as he is now holds more than 400 patents himself. Though inspiring for all, Dean of Invention is intended to inspire young persons to enter science and math so that they can be a part of shaping their own futures.
This is a great competition for our readers. The challenge is sponsored by World Kitchen LLC through What's Bubbling?

This Fall the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) has selected its first Student Ambassador team, a group of exceptional students at 14 universities that are charged with encouraging and leading the creation of socially beneficial technologies and bringing them to commercialization. No easy feat, but the NCIIA will give them plenty of support.
